Wide Turn Truck Accidents
Our firm will fight for the maximum compensation on your claim
It doesn’t take much for a tractor trailer performing a simple left turn to cause a bad truck accident. Due to their size and design, semis and other large trucks need two lanes to turn. To make a safe left turn, a trucker needs to check for traffic. When all is clear, the driver goes into the next lane – sometimes crossing the yellow lines. This widens the turn-radius enough to get a tractor and trailer around a corner.
The Cerasa Law Firm LLC has seen it before. If a trucker is distracted or speeding to make a deadline, he may not see an oncoming car or a motorcycle passing on the right. All of a sudden, a trip to Lake Eola or an amusement park turns into a head-on collision with an 18-wheeler.
Large trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. Any accident with a big rig is serious. If you or a loved one was recently injured in a truck accident, it’s important for you to talk with a lawyer. You are almost certainly owed money to cover your medical expenses and any other losses you’re suffering due to someone else’s negligence.
Our firm gives truck accident victims free case evaluations. We know that no two cases are the same. We will listen to you talk about the crash, what you lost, and what you need to get your life back on track. Together we will build a strong strategy designed to get you maximum compensation for your damages.
Who is at fault in a wide turn accident?
Assigning fault in a wide turn accident is complicated for a couple of reasons.
One: There are many more people than just the trucker who may be responsible for the wreck. Among those people who may be liable in a wide turn truck accident are the:
- Truck driver
- Trucking company
- Truck owner
- Cargo owner
- Cargo loaders
- Maintenance crews
- Truck parts manufacturer.
Two: The at-fault person’s insurance company may accuse you of contributing to the accident by speeding or driving recklessly.
When the insurance companies try to take advantage of accident victims, truck accident lawyer Michael Cerasa gets to work. It is unfair to hold victims responsible for someone else’s carelessness.
